About Scenic Air Safaris 

The Scenic Air Safaris story started in 2009, with a new C208B aircraft ferried from Wichita to Kenya. The same aircraft pioneered the first Across Africa Wing Safari with our founder shareholders charting their way from Kenya down through southern Africa to the Kalahari. That amazing journey started what we continue to pioneer to this day. Indeed, today, we fly East Africa’s youngest fleet of executively configured aircraft, offering our customers the comforts and luxury of the latest and most efficient bush loving aircraft flying in the East African skies.
